"fox & friends", our second hour starts right now.
7:01am
>>dave: good morning, my friends. we are used to sunday showdowns on the football field but this will be good on hill because democrats, republicans, and the leadership, sitting down to hash out a debt deal after we found out some horrible job numbers on friday. a 9.2 percent unemployment rate and 18,000 jobs created only last month. >> no one was happy, the president stepping out holding a press conference yesterday, and just briefing and talking about the status in america and where he thinks the problem is coming from. take a listen. >> the sooner the markets know the debt limit ceiling will have been raised and we have a serious plan to deal with our debt and deficit, the sooner we give our businesses the certainty they will need in order to make additional investments to grow and hire and
7:02am
provide more confidence to the rest of the world so they are committed to investing in america. >> look what happened yesterday with the job numbers, the stock, down, 100 points. will that happen if the debt ceiling is raised? will there be a spike on wall street after that? >>dave: the hair on the president's head is clearly getting grayer with each monthly jobs report. john boehner coming out with one message regarding all of the talks on capitol hill. and it is this. >> i am sure the american people are asking the question, are the jobs? the stimulus spending binge and excess ever government regulations and overwhelming debt continue to hold back job creators around our country. tax hikes on families and job creators only make things worse. >>dave: it was not just 18,000 jobs created but the numbers
7:03am
were downgraded from april and may, 44,000 fewer jobs than expected. canada created more jobs last month than the united states. canada. canada, a country of 30 million. >> if i was on the other side i would kay, okay, mr. boehner, and republicans, you said you would get jobs, where are they. this is nancy pelosi. >> day 185 of the republican majority in the congress and we still have in the seen one jobs bill come to the floor. >>dave: she had 1,400 day days in congress. what happened to jobs? we can track the unemployment rate. it got worse and worse and worse. is it fair to hold the responsible for 185 days but in the four years of democratically controlled house. molly: it has been tough for years and hopefully tomorrow,
7:04am
sunday, owe lawmakers can get together. and make it happen. >>dave: what is your deal? do you like a bill? >> no, no, no, because we have until august 2nd. molly: speaker barne said they are in the that close and he used the word rubric's cube. molly: casey anthony is snubbing the attempt of her family to reach out refusing to see her mom. the only people she has met with are her pleasures. and the rumors of getting $1 million to go on jerry springer, and he says they are 100 percent false. a suspicious passenger forces a united airlines flight to divert to cleveland. the plane was headed from chicago to germany, and the man who would not settle down was
7:05am
arrested upon landing in ohio and police removed his luggage and checked aircraft. in word if he was charged. >> and republicans have selected businessman robert turner to run for weiner's congressional seat and will kickoff in queens on monday face democrat in the special election in september to replace weiner who resigned after sending racy computer messages. the race is shaping up. >>dave: the end of a time, nasa's final launch 50 years after president kennedy proposed putting a man on the moon in 1961 he spoke of the importance of the space race for our nation and appealed to congress for funding. >> now it is time to take longer strides. time for a great new american enterprise. time for this nation to take a clearly leading role in space achievement which in many ways may hold the key to our future
7:06am
on earth. molly: with our shuttle program ending we are leaving russia with a monopoly in space. was america's effort, the effort to leave the exploration, all for nothing? >> joining us from orlando is former astronaut and author of "sky walking," good to see you, tom. was it all a waste of time and money? >> no, the end of the space shuttle program has left us with the international space station and 37 flights of the shuttle were required to build it and that is our outpost in space, and americans will be live there constantly for the next 10 or 15 years, while the nation tries to rally around a new venture in space and that is the open question. so, we will stay in space but whether our ambitions go beyond the space station is an open question. >> i make sports analogy but it is like moving the football down the field and just walking off
7:07am
the field, we will not pay $50 million a ride to the russians, we once battled in the race. we have cutbacks, but, can we just walk away from the space program? is this appropriate? >>guest: well, it is not appropriate, it is embarrassing we are paying russians rental fees, they are good partners and they el hold up their end of the bargain and the space station will operates but it is embarrassing the united states has not made a s soth transition from the shuttle on the final mission, now, to something that goes beyond the shuttle capability. the president declared we. go do an asteroid by 2025, we still have in the come up with the budget and the schedule to actually accomplish that. molly: what people are thinking about, is, russia? justly, we were way ahead of them. we put people open the moon but they are our pans; that what is happening now? >>guest: that is the benefits, i think, of the last 20 years of space collaboration.
7:08am
our former cold war enemies and space race rivals are our pans and they are good partners and they are good capitalists and they will charge what they can for the seateds while we do not have a rocket and we have to get moving to get our systems in space. >> where are we going next with our space program? will we go to mars? where? >>guest: well, the best place is to either the moon or the asteroids which have the most accessible resources to lower the cost of space exploration. it is both twin goals of science and industry in space to shoot for. >>dave: the all their of "sky walking," tom jones, a pleasure to have you, sir. >>guest: have a great weekend. >> and now sad news in the political world: betty ford passed away at age 94. boy did she accomplish a lot in her life and her legacy will continue to be felt for decades and decades, here is a look back
7:09am
at her accomplishments. >> in august of 1974 when nixon resigned the presidency, elizabeth betty ford knew she had her work cut out for her. >> the thought of it was very challenging. it was a demanding job. but it comes with no job description. >> from the beginning, betty ford was an unconventional and independent first lady. >> i told my husband, if we have to go to the white house, okay, i will go but i'm going as myself and it's too late to change my pattern, and if we don't like it, well, they will have to throw me out. >> elizabeth ann was born in 1918 in chicago, illinois, and then the family moved it grand rapids, michigan. and her passion for dance brought her to study in vermont where she met the legendary
7:10am
martha graham and joined her dance company. >> i always treasured my time dedicated to the martha graham dance company, where i was with them for 2 1/2 years in new york. >> after a brief flirtation with molding she returned to michigan in 1941 and worked at a local department store and there after an unsuccessful marriage she met the yale law school graduate and war veteran who would change her live, gerald r. ford, and they were married october 15, 1948, and two weeks after walking downtown aisle, gerald was elected to the first term in congress beginning the road to the white house. as first lady, her outspokenness in trying circumstances endecemberred her to the nation. a month after her husband took office, she was diagnosis the with breast cancer. >> i got hundreds of thousands of women to their doctors and to clinics for breast exams. >> the candidness was not
7:11am
limited to personal life and she supported controversial issues including the passage of the equal rights amendment and freedom of choice, she was on the phone working the state legislatures and everyone for the e.r.a. and she was very unhappy with it not passing. >> when the supreme court voted to legalize abortion and if my words, bring it out of the back woods and put it into hospitals where it belonged, i thought it was a great, great decision. >> her through was not lost on the president. he respected and valued her opinion. >> betty's contribution to history during our time in the white house and after was her total dedication to openness, frankness. >> she had her own right to her own opinion. >> betty lobbied him to appoint more women to top posts in washington.
7:12am
>> a lot of it had to do with, perhaps, putting a woman in the cabinet. >> you won that? >> i won that and i am working on another. all there was a lighter side to mrs. ford. >> she had a really funny, funny sensibility. a sense of the ridiculous. kind of a mischievous quality. a very famous photograph of her barefoot dancing on the cabinet table. >> but darkness loomed she developed an adecisions to painkillers prescribed for a pinched nerve and she began drinking after her husband lost the 1976 presidential election to jimmy carter. >> my family came to me with an intervention, helped me see the light, and said they wanted to help. >> she entered rehab in 1978
7:13am
and, again, openly discussed her problem in public. she received thousands of letters in support, and were order the betty ford center in california four years later. and in her later years she cherished the time she spent with her husband, gerald ford, until his death in december of 2006. mrs. ford is survived by her four children, michael, john, steven and susan and numerous grandchild and great grandchild. >>dave: funeral arrangements will be announced in grand rapids and palm desert, california, and we will have those tomorrow. >> both sides head to washington to work out a debt ceiling, are they working for you? what it means for your paycheck. stay tuned.

7:17am
president is not budging on the debt deal. >> when the markets know the debt limit ceiling will have been raised, and that we have a just plan to deal with our debt and deficit, the sooner we give our businesses the certainty they will need in order to make additional investments to grow and hire. >> will we see a deal? what will it look like? we have columnist here as our guest. >> good morning. always great to have you in the morning. so, this is going to happen, isn't it in the debt ceiling will be raised. >>guest: i thought all along it would certainly be raised. but the issue is whether you could have a debate about cuts to get there. democrats from the beginning said, you and not play politics
7:18am
with this, you cannot have a discussion about this. at all. most of the country is concerned about the deficit saying this is a big deal if you are going to raise the debt ceiling you should deal with the fact we are going interest debt oblivion so that was the question. now we have had a long and tough discussion about this and to me it feels like the president by putting actual entitlements on the table is taking steps he has not taken. >>dave: and they wanted a clean bill and now we are beyond that to the corporate jets and social security and medicare and on and on but who has the bigger mill price to pay? john boehner for giving in on tax hikes? or the president forgiving in on entitlement reform? >>guest: the president, months ago, was, like, we want to get this done quick and the american people who is gotten nothing. having this discussion actually getting cuts is important to the long term goals of our country and as far as the political
7:19am
costs, boehner has a lot at stake, it is hard to walk to line and a lot of conservative dozen not trust him after the last deal which a lot of those spending cuts disappeared after the bill was negotiated and announced so he has to worry about that so the president is in a bad spot with nancy people less freaking out over social security and it feels the g.o.p. has a chance to get most cuts they want and to avoid the tax hikes which with 18,000 jobs created is probably something we want to avoid at the moment the maybe we and have one deal in washington without tax hikes. jones once. for a while. >> thank you for being with us. >> enjoyed it. >> american people feel they are not at table. >>dave: they did not get a seat. thank you, mary. stay tuned.

7:25am
he, and now juror number two, not identifying himself, he says this: i swear to god i wish we had more evidence to put her away. i truly do. everybody agreed if we were going to fully on our feelings and emotions she was done. i'm not so surprised by that. are you? >>guest: no, in the surprised but i want to say, really? and the reason why i say that is juror number two, from the very beginning, the first day, he never picked up his pen and pad and made one note. and i'm telling you it was consistent every day through the entire trial. so when he is saying there wasn't enough evidence, was he truly paying attention? because in the beginning i noticed his head down. he locked like he was falling asleep. so you may as well as put super
7:26am
glue on his seat because he never moved. i'm disappointed with this juror he did not pay more attention and make notes because that is tell willing me, he is using the notes and the opinions of others and he scrod very low on the prosecution side in my scoring system, a 20, which is very strong defense-minded juror. >> people are so angry it seems like they are more angry with the juror than at casey anthony herself. did you get a sense the jurors thought about that, the repercussions or they were focused on the case? what do you see as far as the anger on the streets? >>guest: well, why think they anticipated that. we had juror 11 looking into the stand wondering if everyone was watching him, and he was called the movie star out of the entire pool, but, they really, most of them, paid good attention, they took notes, they were there to
7:27am
do their civil duty, and there were others that had other motives. juror six was taking it all in and never took notes, and, also, remember, he is the one wanting $50,000 for speaking engagements. >> maybe it is time for professional juries? what do you thing of that? >>guest: i think they should go through some training programs to understand what they are looking at because i looked at verdict forms and i am telling you i don't agree where they said the state evercharged. they had several options to choose from and you know what? it was overwhelming. so they need to have a better -- the jury blew it. they blew it. they blew it. they blew it. thank you. >> she has been nonstop busy for weeks. most people order a tequila

7:33am
what do you think? >>dave: do we have that sound bite? listen, here is what she said, it is not an invasion of privacy but a wonderful thing for the private investigation business and it has been something we have haggled over for some period of time. in fact, a new jersey police officer argued this is an invasion of privacy because his wife caught him going over to the wrong house, the wrong lady and he was busted. look, if you are going to do it ... it should be allowed. >> i am trying to ... would i do it? would i do it? if i thought my honey ... >>dave: molly, you are about to get married and you are suspicious and you don't trust the guy? molly: no, i do trust the guy that is why we are getting married.

"we are not affiliated, subsidiary other ally of acorn and the g.o.p. and hud counsel have come to the same conclusion." but you say acorn is still getting taxpayer dollars. how? >>guest: well, acorn
7:45am
originally was 216 separate affiliates and it was hard to keep track of them. the joke was that they are left-handed and didn't know what the extreme left hand was doing. the group that get $80,000 in federal money has the same taxpayer identification numbers of an old acorn affiliate is it is the old acorn under new mismanagement. molly: and watch dog group is making the advantages and pulling the ties together and a concern when acorn was shut down in the fell funding was pulled, was the people in the organization would end up resurfacing and conducting the same practices. your view on that, are the same people involved doing the same thing? >>guest: well, they are doing political agitation and the hud program is designed to educate public housing tenants in asserting rights and that is all about what ascorn -- acorn agitation is.
7:46am
look, the foam head of acorn said we finally have friends in high places with the hud secretary donovan under obama housing program. president obama, himself, started out in the 1990's as a trainer for acorn in chicago and he was their lawyer in key voting rights cases. acorn is marinated throughout the obama administration and although congress voted four times, four times to cut off federal funding clearly it hasn't been done. >>dave: you mentioned how many subsaid airs akon had then and likely still has and continued to evolve, how does the government continue to monitor that? >>guest: look, i'm not saying it is easy, but, what you have to do is look at the kind of programs the money is going to. and, there are people in hud who should be able to figure, well, this training program looks exactly like what we used to
7:47am
give to "camp. maybe it is the same people. maybe it is the same program. under a new name. molly: the gao looked into this extensively and determined there wasn't an issue here and acorn was not involved. so you say that the gao is not accurate? >>guest: well, first of all i'm not sure how extensive their claims of organization is. i say there certainly are questions and have a congressional committee, maybe the house committee on government oversite, maybe they should look into. this is the old acorn program and it is now still operating although congress has said "corn is discredited. so, i know some of the same people are involved and we at least have suspicions here and they need to be addressed. >>dave: senior editor of "american spectator," thank you,

8:17am
>> dave and molly, i went to philadelphia and he made me kiss the ring before he allowed me into the studio. >> we didn't do that, this morning. >>dave: good to have the king of austin, texas, what did you thing of what the president's chief advisor said? i agree people want to worry about their situation but is the unemployment rate a reflection of their situation? >> there are two explanations. one is that it was in artful, he was saying they may not be able to say 9.1 percent or 9.12 percent, or 14.1 million unemployed and 45 percent of those people have been there for six months or more, he may not have been able to, they may not be able to say the numbers but it matters. that was the point it was missed. and the other is, more likely, he was trying to diminish unemployment as an issue and went on to say that what matters is, who do i think has the best
8:18am
vision for the future of the country is what really matters but, lock, -- lock when you have one in 11 americans unemployed and you take interest account the people who have gotten so discouraged they is given up looking that is one in six, and those are deadly numbers for a president running for re-election claiming to be in charge of the economy, and asking for memorial to vote for him because of the stewardship of jobs. >> yesterday, president obama, said he is not worried about the election yet, what are your thoughts? does he have time before the campaign kicks off? >>guest: this is not what he has been doing all year. the "state of the union" address was completely political, and was not governing agenda, and he has been in full political mode. he had a speech on entitlements and he asked the republican responder to sit in the front row so he could excoriate him by name, he has done 30 fundraising
8:19am
events and in 2003 president bush had done, maybe, four, and president obama is in full campaign mode and i wish he were not, if he were foe discussed on the job of being president, the numbers would be better and we would probably have a solution to the debt ceiling crisis that would have improved the president's row recollection numbers but she in full campaign mode. who is he kidding. all the time. >> sure, but he and make some history now, the debt ceiling, the big meeting tomorrow, it seemed that he is compromising here, he touched a third rail of politics, and you are you are talking about social security, medicare and medicaid. >> he has to because over the next tenures our government will spend $46 trillion and the best case scenario says that $12 trillion will be deficit.
8:20am
at the end of 12 years quote have a deficit $26 trillion more than twice as big as the american economy, almost twice as big as the american economy, unsustainable. so he has to do something. the problem is, he looks like he is dragged to this, kicking and screaming. what if this happened four or five months ago he would look better and the country would have a better frame of mind. instead we will be coming right to the end, and the president will be looked like she compromising but he should be leading the country to a solution. >>dave: should be interesting tomorrow, thank you, and have a great weekend in austin, sir. molly: next, a rihanna concert turns up the heat, literally, when a fire breaks out on the stage.

8:25am
for missed appointments and they run late and you think maybe th either kind of doctor that is spending too much personal time on the phone i request see this. but i want to point out, doctors are not making a lot these days and they may be running late especially primary care doctors like me because the office is too full. i have a policy where i will take all people who are sick. why have the three month waiting time so if you want to see me and you want me to run it like a business, i should run on time. here is another thing, if you are there and you are ten minutes are up, you don't want me to say, sorry, your time is up. next guy. dave the average time forage emergency room, not primary care, is four hours and seven minutes. for primary care, it is only 22 minutes. my point is, it is not that i want you to rush through care, but are doctors booking too many patients to be able to see you in a timely manner?
8:26am
>> in a word, yes. but that is because the expenses are going up and reimbursements are going down and i want to practice the art of medicine. i want to focus on the patient, you cannot have that rapport in six minutes. as the paints walk out the door they tell me what is really wrong. if i have my eye on the clock i will not find out. molly: how much has to do with how the insurance companies do business? >>guest: the 10 or 15 minutes, the idea comes from the insurance company and they have created huge interface between the doctor and patient and they are in charge. in the old days it was, the patient is your friend, you do not worry about the money. that is how i try to practice, but it is getting harder to do that. if we have to kickback when we runaway, more doctors are going to runaway. >>dave: and it will be worse

sacrifice and service. >> thank you. >> and best of luck to you. >> dave, back to you in the studio. >> dave: rick, thank you. if that segment didn't get you, this will floor you, you're going to get that because my friend from dave white, from home depot is here and that's the punch line. >> a good way to do it. >> in this real estate market you have to compete for buyers, one way is replacing a floor and it's not that hard. >> no, people think that's a hard project to do and i'm going to show you today, cool products that make it extremely easy and choices. let's start with tile, tile is a classic, in your foy, your kitchen, durable and all kinds of choices, but it can be hard to install, a little messy and a lot of people are intimidated. so this is tile, real tile, but it's already got a backing and it's already got grout. >> that's half the battle. >> you can put it over hard surface floor and don't have
9:38am
to put anything under it, all you have to do is snap it in place and then you can-- >> are you cutting? >> hammer it home. >> those builders are overcharging if they're using this. >> the only place you don't want it use this, in a wet application, like a shower or otherwise. >> not in the bathroom? >> you can use it on bathroom floors, absolutely, not in the shower. >> this is a final floor, simulated wood, allure, from ultra, it's vinyl, it's flexible and a really, really durable product and the cool thing about this, you can put it just about over any flat surface na basement, in a bathroom, it installs much the same way and this is like a click lock technology. >> once you lock this together, it's 100% water resistant and this is great for kitchen and bathroom floors. >> now what this is great for, dave? kids. >> yes, so if you're going to be doing like a playroom, it's perfect for that spills aren't going to bother it the at all. let's move to more of a wood
9:39am
floor. >> careful with this one and scratching. >> no, this is a laminate floor, it looks like real wood, but it's an engineered wood and a foam cushion built into the back, because all of these are floating floors not stapling or grewing them. >> particle board. >>, but like a particle board with a picture of wood. and you can put in a basement or a concrete slab, a place you can't put wood, with a vapor barrier and goes together just like the others and easy to install and durable. great for a kids playroom and things like that. >> if you want the real deal, i assume a little more effort. >> a little more? >> yeah, so financially, yes, the vinyl, but look at this, this is cool. so you can get either real hard wood which would be like an oak or a maple and sand it
9:40am
and finish itten and get dust or a pre-finished and this is an engineered wood floor, what that means is it's different layers of wood that are pressed together it's more stable than regular wood doesn't expand and contract as much and real wood top already finished and clicks together the same way and this you can install over most hard floor services and put this cushion barrier on the bottom of it. and it clicks together and it's a floating floor and this tough is really nice. >> this is home legend. this is actually a santos mahogany. it's beautiful floor and we kind of take the hard out of hard wood floors. >> dave: so good. dave white from home depot and bringing the puns and brought his daughter, too, hello to caroline. check out home depots. >> mike: thank you, dave, we

9:45am
take legal action? who better to ask than someone in the courtroom, judge janine pirro, can he they sue. >> inbound anybody can sue, the question, can they win? no, what's said in the courtroom, protected, immune and policy behind it. people should be able to defend themselves and say what they want. the bottom line, are george and cindy want to stay in the courtroom with their daughter again? it's outrageous and he no one should be burdened or hurdled with that accusation, was it brought up again. >> lee takes the stand, accused of groping casey. >> that's the brother and they basically say to george, did you molest your daughter, no. >> they go so far the judge says you cannot bring that up in your close because there's no evidence. >> right, right. >>, but a lot of people today are angry at the money that might be headed casey
9:46am
anthony's way, whether it's a book deal, a movie deal, there certainly is, but you also say there's money she's going to have to pay up, not from the lawsuit with george and cindy, but others. >> think about it, she got $200,000 from abc supposedly and owes 70,000 on taxes she hasn't paid and owes court costs and money from check fraud conviction and she also is being sued by fernando goenz and money for lying to the the police and the convictions she got. whatever money she makes for movies, books or photos, and she'll be in debt and the shame of the this is, my theory is she'll lie her way out again. and that's the theory as i do the research this morning. what about the dynamics? things were messy and court
9:47am
and cindy want today see her in jail and casey said no, i don't want to see you, mom. >> she reject add request by her mother to visit her. remember, the mother had the not visited her in several years. >> because of jose baez instruction. >> apparently because of that, but in court, cindy anthony when she got off the stand and looked at her daughter the defendant, and mouthed i love you. which kind of shocked all of us in the courtroom as she said it. on the show tonight, mark littman, the attorney for george and cindy, does she go home? where does the woman did? he basically said he didn't know, it certainly is a fractured family i can't imagine what it's like thanksgiving at a home like that, but you know, i think that, i think it's a fractured relationship. >> mike: judge, i'm not sure i've heard your opinion on what you thought the jury did? >> you know what? mike, i don't think i heard it right. i was literally onset and maybe i didn't hear it right. maybe the court clerk didn't read it right. we were stunned, shocked, it
9:48am
was an incredible surprise to all of us. >> is it the jurors fault? >> no, you can't criticize the jury, but i think everybody will want dna, 1, 2, 3, circumstantial evidence the hall mark of our criminal justice system is something they know longer consider strong, surprising. >> dave: fascinating show, with the emmy winning judge janine pirro. >> most three year olds can't tie their shoes sometimes, but this one saved his mom's life, listen. >> 911, hello. >> mommy sick. >> mama's sick? >> we're going to talk to this grateful mom and the little boy that saved her life next. ] this...is the network -- a network of possibilities. in here, the planned combination of at&t and t-mobile would deliver our next generation mobile broadband experience to 55 million more amecans,

>> some quick headlines. we now know who will take on the dancing democrat for the right to succeed anthony weiner. a 70-year-old retired businessman and took 40% of the vote against weiner in 2010. the special election is in september and fans in texas are forced to leave a concert early. witnesses say a light went up and flames spread to the set and the curtains and everyone inside the american airline center was evacuated and luckily, no one was hurt. >> mike: rihanna is hot, but that's ridiculous. not many three year olds can tie their shoes and use the phone right and cell phones. but when this tot's mom collapsed he reacted by calling 911. >> emporia, 911, hello. >> mommy sick.
9:53am
>> mama's sick? >> yeah, mama was sick. within five minutes of that call, first responders arrived and jessie wagner's life was saved. she and her son join us from kansas city. oh, jessie, so great to see you. and there's sylas who you adopted when he was right on the first day of his life. and how did this happen? first of all, why did you collapse? what was wrong with you. >> well, i'm diabetic and i had just had a bit of kind of like a stomach flu that day, not been feeling well, but it was enough to just really throw my blood sugars out of whack, and so, i just, i ended up collapsing, but luckily, he was there to save the day. >> mike: how did he know what to do? >> we had talked before quite a bit about when to call 911 and how to do that. i'd showed him on the cell phone and i had recently gotten a new cell phone about six weeks before this had
9:54am
happened and so we had just reviewed everything, to make sure that he knew how to access the 911 on the new phone. >> mike: yeah. it just must blow you away, mom. >> it does. i'm very, very proud of him. he never ceases to amaze me. >> mike: and never ceases to stop moving. >> yes, he's very wiggly. >> we were going to put an ear piece in his ear and wiggling around. >> that's right. >> mike: is he always like that. >> oh, yes, he's a mover and a shaker. >> mike: must be really smart you've done a good job. >> well, thank you, i think it's really important to talk to your kids about the whatten had ifs and how to handle situations as they arrive. sylas, and i, i'm a single mom and we're on our own and i felt it's important he know how to get a hold of help he needed to and really all kids,
9:55am
i think, it should be taught especially with cell phones. >> i mean, can he-- he's three years old, a bright kid. can he say to you, yeah, i understand what you're talking about? i know that i'm calling for help? does he know he's calling to police or an ambulance? >> he does know that he's calling the police. and he thought that was pretty neat how quick the-- he he called them the cool police guys showed up. but, so he does know that it's the police and that it's help, but he honestly, i mean, today he obviously doesn't realize what a big deal it is, that he was able to follow through. >> mike: he's quite the talk of kansas city where you are right now. is he going to get any kind of award or something? >> we will be, our city commissioners in our hometown of emporia will be presenting him with a hero award july 20th, and which we're really excited about. and so we'll have, we'll be attending the city commission meeting for that.
9:56am
